Love Letters from the Edge by Shelly Beach and Wanda Sanchez

Book description:

Millions of women in the United States battle with after-effects of suffering so great they’ve developed post-traumatic stress disorder—the same suffering experienced by soldiers who’ve gone through war. Sexual and physical abuse, catastrophic accidents, abandonment, natural disasters, invasive medical procedures, and many other painful and overwhelming events can trigger symptoms they are little equipped to deal with and hard-pressed to recognize.

Love Letters from the Edge provides a voice for those struggling to express this pain and reveals intimate encouragement for those in desperate need to hear God’s words of love and deliverance. This heartfelt devotional focuses on the profound laments in the book of Psalms. Each meditation begins with a letter from someone in the throes of despair and then offers a tender response to their pain from God’s perspective.

Fresh, honest, and intimate, Love Letters from the Edge will reach readers who never expected to hear good news from where they are and point them toward the hope and healing of Christ.

My review:

One thing we are promised is that in this life we will have trials. This book offers readers a source of encouragement to meditate on during those painful times. It is based in Scripture and focuses readers’ attention on God, who can heal all wounds.

My favorite thing about this book is that it is easy to use and offers readings on many different situations. It isn’t necessarily a book that one would read straight through. Instead, I think it is nice to skip around and find readings based on what situation you might be experiencing at a given time. Not all reading will apply to everyone, but the message from each one can.

The length of each reading was perfect. They immersed readers in a situation, offered questions to meditate on, and ended with a prayer. I think it is a great book that could benefit many people.

If you are looking for an encouraging book to support you in the struggles of this life, this is a great choice!

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Kregel Publications in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.
